Welcome to Longbenton High School. We are proud to be a successful 11-18 school with an excellent sixth form in a wonderful modern, purpose-built space.
Longbenton High School is a very special community. We are smaller than average, with year groups of around 180. Staff get to know our students very well and we pride ourselves on the strong relationships built with our young people and their families. The school is immensely proud of the spirit, individuality and loyalty of our students. We have a supportive and inclusive culture that values and celebrates personal enrichment and creativity alongside academic achievement. We are proud of our reputation as a friendly and welcoming school where we care for all of our staff and students.
Our core purpose is to ensure all students EVOLVE, CREATE, DISCOVER, PERFORM and ACHIEVE. Our values are kindness, honesty, positivity, determination and ambition . We teach students to be respectful and to have impeccable manners. The expectation is that everyone should aim high. We strive to equip them with the skills, knowledge and personal attributes required for the 21st century. Teaching staff are animated and passionate about teaching and we promote a calm, ordered and supportive environment where relationships flourish.
Longbenton High School is undergoing a transformation following our last Ofsted inspection. The highest standards of behaviour and teaching are ensuring our students are safe, happy and fully engaged in learning.
